Six inventors from The California Invention Convention have been invited to attend the National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) in June 2017
Our winners designed and built inventions ranging from The River Trash Trap (which collects plastic and other trash in the river before it goes into the ocean) to the Foot Sling (holds up the injured foot while on crutches). These kids want to go to Washington DC to compete with other student inventors from around the nation.
Won’t you sponsor a young California inventor to NICEE?
The National Invention Convention and Entrepreneurship Expo (NICEE) (sponsored by the STEMIE Coalition) provides an unprecedented opportunity for young inventors to be acknowledged and rewarded for their innovative thinking. Unfortunately, our schools struggle with the resources to send their brightest inventors to DC to compete at NICEE. It is a long and expensive trip from California to the NICEE event in Washington, DC.
To help the nation’s most deserving, underserved inventors, the STEMIE Coalition has created the IPower program for all their affiliates to use, partnering with the Intellectual Property Legal Industry to help send these kids to DC to compete. The IP Legal Industry bases itself in invention, entrepreneurship, ingenuity, and is a perfect partner for The STEMIE Coalition.
“It’s not too often that our law firm is asked to help sponsor a program that is so well aligned to our corporate interests,” says Mike Cantor, founder of Cantor Colburn LLP, a top 10 IP U.S. law firm. “Helping these kids understand intellectual property concepts, and help them learn how to invent the future of America, puts us on a path that helps keep America at the forefront of ingenuity and towards feeding a robust and growing IP industry moving forward.”
The STEMIE Coalition has created three different levels designed to maximize the effect a small donation can make in the life of a young inventor – 100% of IPower funds go directly to young inventors and their chaperones.* Furthermore, you can choose the state you wish to support – all funds go directly to California Invention Convention programs!
